Each chapter explores a world in which history, faith and human savagery dominate lives and deaths. We see how a whole family was sucked into the conflict, killing its enemies and then being killed itself. We experience the chilling underside of the intelligence war between the British security forces and the IRA, and the bullet-in-the-head consequences for those IRA volunteers who turn and betray their former comrades. We live the transformation of an IRA volunteer whose attempt to ambush and murder goes horribly wrong, turning him into a hero and martyr for the cause. Rebel Hearts is a history, a map, and a guide to the psychological underworld of the IRA. It explains and uncovers the roots of the conflict in Northern Ireland through a series of compelling individual portraits of IRA men.
